Beautifully simple, R1 is ideal for the kitchen, perfect in the office and simply delightful to wake up to in the bedroom and with a quality Bluetooth receiver built in you can wirelessly stream music to R1 from your phone or computer. Most importantly, if you love listening to the radio then we are confident that you’ll find R1 a revelation.
The New R1
14 years in the making
It was 14 years ago that we first launched our now iconic R1 radio! This autumn we are pleased to announce the launch of our fourth-generation model, the R1 Mk4. We believe everyone deserves good design in their lives and, like the original, the look of the new R1 Mk4 is simple yet stunning. We believe it is even more in-tune with what discerning customers are seeking today.
RADIO NEVER SOUNDED OR LOOKED THIS GOOD
We believe the R1 Mk4 sets new standards for sound and features! With acoustic treatment the enclosure is strong and acoustically inert, providing an ideal housing for our electronics and NS+ driver.
A linear amplifier along with our NS+ driver and adaptive equalisation produce an eminently listenable sound at all volume levels.
BRILLIANT DISPLAY & GREAT CONNECTIVITY
The OLED display vividly shows time, alarm and programme information and auto adjusts to suit ambient light levels making it a perfect bedside companion.
Digital and Analogue reception is excellent, and FM parameters can be set to suit US and Japanese needs. R1 also supports most Western and Eastern languages making it a truly international proposition. With a RTC (real time clock) built in, time and date are kept live when power is disconnected or when transmitted data is not available.
Other highlights include a quality Bluetooth receiver, USB-C charge and playback port, switchable auxiliary input and headphone output. Finally, our trademark RotoDial control system makes R1 easy to use and for those seeking distant operation, there is a compact remote control available as an optional extra.
